of the party right now is that it is anti-tax and once big cuts in the size of government. and that has not changed. and through the whole budget wars we've been seeing, the sequester, i think this came up the last time i was here. the economic conservatives, the low tax, small government conservatives have established their supremacy. they have beaten out the national security hawks who didn't want to see cuts to defense. i think this is an example where they're beating the social conservatives who aren't ready for a shift in gay marriage. opposition within the party to gay marriage is substantial and they don't want a more liberalized immigration policy. so the one thing that is still here is low taxes, including on the wealthy, and deep cuts to government. i think that is a fundamental problem for the party. it cause them problems with all kinds of groups. there is only so much you can do when you change the language as long as you hold on to the tax and spending cuts policies. >> you touched on immigration policy. i think lawmakers in washington on the republican side see it as esse
of the choice that was made to put in combined sewer systems. narrator: in 1994, the government adopted a combined sewer overflow policy to reduce csos nationwide. cities with combined sewer overflows now face an enforcement action called a consent decree. under a consent decree, a city must reduce pollution levels significantly within a strict time frame or face heavy fines. in 1960, the combined sewer overflows were a perfectly legitimate way of dealing with sewers. woman: the mind set was that, what did it matter if we were sending our waste downstream? water was a good conveyance for pollution. man: sewer systems are installed to reduce public health problems. now what you're doing is transferring the problem, you're transferring it to downstream cities. in addition, cities and towns above pittsburgh were doing the same thing. and then they were affecting the water intakes of pittsburgh. 90% of this region gets its drinking water from those same rivers that we have overflows occurring. hecht: we have sewage overflow with as little as 1/10" inch of rain. and our average storm here is
living in a prison-like state governed at every step of their life by the east german government. >> tom did not have a prompter. tom did not have a script. he just had the entire history of the 20th century in his head. and it all came out that night. >> sometime after midnight at the berlin wall one of our computer technicians ed lee came running up wide-eyed and he handed me a big chunk of the berlin wall. and he said they were taking it down right before our eyes. so i keep a small kind of iconic piece of it on my desk constantly. i think it represents the shattering of the divisions between people and the collapse of the soviet union and communism as a political philosophy. you can build a wall, but the people will take it down. ♪ new day for the catholic church, and new questions about the church's influence on american politics. we have perspective this morning on the journey ahead for pope francis, from cardinal francis george, the archbishop of chicago. what message did the cardinals mean to send with the selection of the first ever pope from latin america? a special discussio
the reported 10 billion euros. he said the number has been exaggerated by the communist government, the former communist government. the officials are saying the imf nor the ecb has independently verified this figure. tyler, i have a call in to the imf. i'm awaiting their response. >>> 40% of the deposits in the cyprus banks belong to foreigners. many of whom are russian investors. robert frank here with the fallout on this. i guess it's easier for the cyprus officials to say let me take the money out rather than lay the whole cost of this bailout on cyprus' taxpayers. >> but the way they did it is surprising. cyprus is not just a tax haven for russia, it is the tax haven for russian millionaires and billionaires. russia has invested $119 billion, that's with a "brks" in cyprus in 2011 alone. that's by far the largest recipient of russian investments in the world. equal amount of investment came back to russia from cyprus. funny how that works. russian investment is five times the total economic output for cyprus. russians account for $20 billion of total bank deposits or, tyler, as you mentio
this will be perceived and that's something that our executives, and whether they're in the regular federal government or the postal service, has to take note of. that the public is watching and that they are turned off by seeing waste of taxpayer dollars or in this case, sosh service dollars. >> attendees see it another way. >> relationships and networking very important. if they just stand in their office in washington they wouldn't get the feel of what the mailers want and need in the industry because the industry's changing. technology is changing and the postal service is changing with it. >> reporter: again, the u.s. postal service spending more than 2 million dollars on exhibit space and travel expenses. that may not sound like a lot, but as one government watch dog group told me, the way you end up 16 billion dollars in debt you don't worry about a 2 million dollar expenditure. over time, harris, it all adds up. >> harris: indeed it does. thank you. and republican lawmakers stepping up calls to hear from the the survivors of the benghazi terror attacks, six months after that assault there are
with the risk of another government shutdown only two weeks away the budget battle heats up on the hill. the house and senate voting this week on their respective plans and then we'll have it out. good morning, everybody. great shot of washington, d.c. hope you had a great weekend. martha: i did. good morning bill hemmer, good morning everybody at home. i'm martha maccallum. what have we got here? president's budget proposal, his will not be released until early april. the dueling congressional plans are the only on shun out there. paul ryan thinks, understandably because it is his plan, thinks it is the best one. >> the goal the republican majority is to get us on a path to balanced budget to put the debt crisis out and borrow time with the bond markets. yes, i believe the president won't pass our budget into law but let's get a down payment and get a good start on the problem. that to me a constructive bipartisan engagement can accomplish. bill: with that as a baseline kelly wright live at the white house this morning a lot of talk about a grand bargain, is that being revived, kelly?
the library had been run privately and the federal government had kept all of president nixon's papers in washington, one of the outcomes of watergate, and my job was to bring it together and have a federally funded and administered library in california with the papers. so we started this oral history project 30 years late. and after all, it's much better when you get people when they're just out of the administration. and another since talking years later the time to, and may be more candid. the really, really older gentleman of the entity for the library had been with richard nixon in the '60s. you just mentioned something about him pushing him out. without exception, the men who had been with them in the '50s, he pushed away when he got to the white house. and he brought close to him younger people. he enjoyed having of the people around, but younger people he could mold and shape. and a lot of the trouble that arose was that these younger people were willing to do what he wanted them to do. whereas the older people and the numbers we interviewed wanted, kept saying no, don't do th
grant program. we need to invest substantially more, on the federal government side, as an inducement to states and local governments to make the investments they need to make. man: but the federal role is going to continue to be diminished because of so many competing demands. so the expectation that the federal government will step in and infuse a lot of capital into water infrastructure, i think, is doubtful. and whether they should or not, i think, will continue to be debated. narrator: where money continues to be elusive, some cities and towns are turning their assets over to private companies, hoping the private sector can find the solutions they cannot. man: in the u.s., roughly 90% of all water and wastewater systems are still publicly owned and publicly managed. the remaining 10% are managed by privately held companies. man: the private sector has learned to become very efficient, and frequently a municipality can save themselves a significant amount of money by bringing in a private company. this is not true in all cases. there are some exceptionally well-run municipalities,
is regional governance and cooperation where we try to emphasize move each of our cities that they really need to figure out in their broader economic region, not just within their city limits. so how do you coordinate with the communities around you to advance some of these policy issues, whether it's transportation, environmental improvements, economic development, education systems, workforce training, etc. these are some of the issues that we really want to publicize the best practices so that practitioners such as ourselves can bring these ideas back home and really move an issue forward. i think here in the bay area, bringing this group of four european experts here has really been an interesting exercise for me, not knowing the city of oakland very much at all, having been to san francisco a few times, but it really is -- i do think that the communities here are poised to really be sort of going over the crest of the hill in terms of moving this issue forward. and i think hopefully these four will serve as sort of a catalyst in your community to get the community talking about what is p
efficient government building in the united states today, if not the world. and it is an example that the entire united states can look to and say, that's what we need to do to save our city hundreds of millions of dollars in energy consumption a year and set an example to everybody of how to save energy, to be green, to be sustainable, to be responsible. the city is leading the way. >> it will be immediately recognizable and iconic from various parts of the city or even if you see a picture. that's the sfpuc building. it's a wonderful building. ♪ ♪ >>> while i get myself settled, maybe a show of hands. how many already been to see the exhibition? a number of you. first of all let me say good afternoon and first and foremost i would like to thank my colleagues in the education department in the fine arts museum of san francisco for an allowing me to speak today. valuable artwork -- rene, director of public programs and last on this list but certainly not least gregory stock who is a programming wizard. i'm so grateful for their individual and collective support. i would als
of a governing authority. that could all be done by any pope. >> the center of gravity changing, look at the mere fact of a pope from the americas and how many catholics are from latin america, some 40% of over a billion catholics in the world, anna, are latinos. and this is such a significant moment. when the church changes. >> huge, david. really, i can't talk about what it means for hispanics. there's a lot of rivalries between latin american countries. i can tell you we are all so thrilled at having a latin pope, we don't even mind he's argentinian. just wonderful to have a pope that is going to be able to relate to the americas that lived in political strife, that lived under the repression, that has seen what is going on in argentina, the poverty, the economic crisis, that can not only speak our language but can get our ladnguage, is one of us. i think you'll see him active on issues like immigration. you're going to see that the archbishops will be more active in that even though they have been active already. and like chris, i do hope to see more participation by women in the church. i wo
government. president obama has recognized the great effort that san francisco has started and want to continue. so we can eradicate violence here in san francisco and start a global movement. everyone here is touched by domestic violence. if you say you don't know, it may be your co-worker. or your sister that doesn't want to speak out. it could be your mother or grandmother. i do this in memory of a fellow co-worker, laura sweat, who was murdered by her husband. and in that moment two young children were left without a mother. i do this in her memory and in hope that the world will see no more violence. thank you for joining one billion rising. you have the power to save lives. [applause] thank you, julie chu, from the commission of women. there are vaginas around? i am marily mondejar. i am one of the organizers of the event tonight. and i am a survivor of domestic violence. i rise tonight because when i was 22 years old i did not know that i could leave my abusive marriage. i rise tonight because when i was 26 years old i did not know that there were countless other women suffer
sunshine week. it is no secret that open government is under attack in san francisco. someone gets a title and already he thinks he is an aristocrat who should be able to make his self-serving deals at the expense of the public without interference from democracy. there was a time when open records laws public library were both involved in serving a democratic right to know and empowering the people. that was before the library and san francisco government decided that serving the interests of the so-called aeries toe contracts could be turned into a private income stream. ~ you have become so enslaved to private money you decided right to know is a place to save money. if we want a democracy, we need open institutions of knowledge that allow access to the truth. saving money on those institutions of knowledge is like selling our children. it is no accident that the san francisco public library is the most egregious sunshine violator in the city. once it is a private income stream, the philanthropyists want power and exclusivityity. the destruction of democracy is what they expect for the
